Random Encounter


What is a pop culture cafe??

Random Encounter is a café with a difference – We’re more than just sandwiches and sodas. Here, you can settle old scores on Mario Kart, introduce a friend to a board game you’ve always wanted them to try, or kick back with a few friends and a movie. All while being served with our unique selection of geek-friendly snacks, food and drinks.

It’s also the perfect place to try new hobbies and make new friends. Getting into a new card game is ten times easier with some helpful advice and a plate of Tetris-shaped cookies.

Speciality: Hot Drinks £2-3, Cold drinks £1-2 and Toasties from £4.50
